Finding the right school is essential. Spending time with the students, meeting the staff, and visiting the classes are experiences that will help you make this important decision.

WPPS intake is in Grade N only when boys are 4 turning 5 years old. There are a few places available for boys in Grades 6 and 7 throughout the year because of the class size structure in Senior Prep.

Anglican Tradition  We are a Christian school in the Anglican tradition, teaching the Christian faith in an atmosphere of respect for others.

A Curriculum for Life  The school offers a holistic, broad-based education in a boys-only environment. We promote academic, cultural and sporting excellence relevant to our changing world, and ensure a balanced involvement in all three areas.Our staff implements the very best of new trends and practices in education. Our boys thrive in the small family atmosphere provided by the school, with a programme of comprehensive tuition and activities being offered.

Quality Staff  There is an excellent professional academic team and well-qualified support staff, who nurture the pupils and are specialised to cope with each developmental phase. The classes are kept small to increase individual attention. The entire staff works as an integrated team, and there is mutual respect for the contribution each member makes.

The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising programme is one of South Africa’s biggest community programmes. We raise funds for schools, charities and environmental organisations through a card system that allows supporters to raise funds for their beneficiary (school or charity) every time they shop at our partner stores. Partners make a contribution, on behalf of the supporter/cardholder, towards the beneficiary they have selected.


The system allows cardholders to make a difference to a worthy cause without it costing them a cent! The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme raises more than R4 million per month for the schools, charities, animal welfare and environmental organisations it supports.

How does MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet work?

More than 700 000 South Africans carry MySchool cards.

Supporters apply for a free MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and select up to 3 schools and/or charities as their beneficiary/ies.

When they purchase items from participating retailers they swipe the card with the purchase.

A percentage of their transaction is then allocated to their beneficiary.

The partner stores pay the contribution on behalf of the cardholder. All these transactions are recorded and a statement is sent to individual supporters on a monthly basis. The supporter card is not a credit or debit card but simply tracks transactions and funds raised.

Where can I swipe my MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card?

The success of the programme depends on the number of times you swipe your card. Supporters can use their cards at a range of national, regional and local retail partners on the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet system. Some of the national partners include

Woolworths, Engen Quickshops, Engen Foodstops, Waltons,, Toys R Us, Reggie’s, Power24 pre-paid electricity, MySchool Travel Altech Netstar and many more.
